So I contacted Amazon about the Inception/Transformers lightning deal mess from this morning and they gave me a $5 GC. Kudos to Amazon.

That's great!

My wife placed an order for two books this afternoon, and the order does not appear in our order history at all. I think this may have been during the period when the site was going haywire. Will have to see if the CC was charged or not, but I doubt it.

I was going to order Scarface steelbook after finding another item today, and now Amazon raised the price. I hate not having Prime.

I same thing happened to me, but I was like 398 on the waitlist. It actually came thru though, it popped up about 20 minutes later and gave me 3 minutes to check out. I got one.

Here's the link, but it's not working today. I'm pretty sure that they have had it every Thursday.

I usually buy a ton of stuff from Amazon and so far it has just been two things. I despise Best Buy but so far I have bought way more stuff from them. I just think that's odd.
Not for me, I bought more movies on Amazon this year then I have in the past. For me, a lot of the movies I wanted went on sale earlier in the week rather then waiting for a lightning deal on Friday or Saturday, so I ended up with everything I wanted as well as a game.

I'm definitely happy.

re: Amazon Blu-ray Discounts and Deals Thread #27

For Movies, Amazon sales were good, but probably close to their pricing formula last year as well. But the B&Ms are now so much more aggressive in pricing, finally catching up with Amazon, that it does not seem as great as we were used to. I visited Best Buy and Target today and was really surprised at the pricing for a lot of their dvds/blus. They were really priced to sell, and if you're a big fan, it is a great couple of days for picking up your favorites.

For other items, I would say Amazon is doing great with their lightning deals, given that stock of popular items can be sold out in just a few minutes. I myself have purchase a lot of electronic items and video games at Amazon this week, and a lot less movies this time around.

If they are trying to save this would have been the order to save on shipping.

Wondering if they are going to run a sale for two and a half men (order 3 sets of the 8 out). BTW how much is Ben-Hur at best buy I cannot fine the price on that one.
GoHastings is having a "14.99 or less" sale on tv shows Friday and Saturday only. I did a quick search and TaaHM were 9.99 each(plus shipping). May place an order for the one season of Six Feet Under I did not find at Wal-mart yesterday.

Put season 4 & 5 in the cart. In the end it would be more then Amazon at $12.99. I remember right its their shipping (this would be the same with anywhere) that is why I do not buy from them.

I expected $3.99. Not 50 cents cheaper than what Best Buy was selling it for over the past few months.

Clerks II? WTF is Amazon smokin'. I guess if they sell CRANK next, I'll have confirmation.

GoHastings sent out some unique codes earlier this week. To my surprise it worked on new dvds.

Just find some people to split it with. You can have up to 5 "family members," so when all is said and done, it's pretty damn cheap for a year's worth of prime.

Is that version of Stargate a good one? I know there are a couple different versions out there (or at least there were at one time).

I have to purchase a CD as a gift later today in a Lightning Deal, and while I have Prime, I would prefer to combine it.
